Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 02-25-2005

Brown Ale aged in used Pinot Noir barrels from local Sonoma County wineries. It is aged for about 12 months with sour cherries, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus added to each barrel. Flavors from the cherries, Pinot Noir and oak balance each other nicely with a little funk from the brett.

It's actually a pretty modest looking brown ale, but the lacing is a perfect off-white around the glass. (A taller 10z goblet)

The wine cask element overwhelms, but it's very pleasant.

Again, the wine cask element overwhelms, but it's a very pleasant sour ale. Tart cherry is the key element.

Medium to light body, ample carbonation with a somewhat dry finish.

It's as good as advertised.

Look: Pours a nice clear reddish color without too much head

Smell: Tart cherries and hints of dry red wine

Taste: A complex brew of nice sourness, tart cherries, subtle dry red wine, hints of oak

Feel: Medium body and carbonation

Overall: This is a an excellent brew. Would love it if this was easier to get, though that might not be good for my wallet.

Love this beer, sour cherries round it out nicely. Not quite as amazing as Consecration but what is?
